Mystical Verses of a Mad Dalai Lama
Lyrical mystic verses of the Second Dalai Lama translated by a Tibetan Buddhist scholar.
Geared to the nonspecialist, Mystical Verses of a Mad Dalai Lama offers a fine introduction to Tibetan Buddhism and the institution of the Dalai Lamas, a readable biography, and beautifully phrased translations of the Second Dalai Lama’s songs of enlightenment. The Second Dalai Lama, self-described as “mad” in reference to a realization of emptiness and non attachment, was noted for his clear, powerful verse.
